Swim Lessons

Swim -lessons

YMCAs have been teaching people to swim for more than a century. In YMCA aquatics programs, children learn to be safe around water and they feel the sense of accomplishment that comes with learning something new. Youth progressive swimming is the YMCA's third most widely offered program nationwide. It uses a problem-solving, guided-discovery teaching approach in a positive, caring environment. Kids can develop lifelong skills that can help them stay healthy.

Other YMCA aquatics programs include infant-parent classes, preschool classes, classes for people with disabilities and classes for youth and adults. These include water exercise, therapy and water sports, including competitive swimming.

See our current Program Guide for times and locations of our swim classes.
